I grew up in Ripley, Tennessee, a farming community of 3,000 people, the county seat of Lauderdale County, located 50 miles north of Memphis. My mother and dad had been married 17 years when I was born. They had grown up poor and sacrificed for me to have the things they never were able to enjoy in their youth. I had a happy childhood playing sports with my friends and doing the things boys do in small towns.
